Une 1949 Stage Coach 




yearbook of Saint yMary, i 
School ana junior College 




THE TREE THAT IS SAINT MARY'S 
As trees shed their leaves in the autumn of the year, so SAINT MARY'S casts each member 
of its Senior Class into the world to fight for her existence . . . not to wither as one would think, but 
to enrich all the earth with what each has gained at the height of blossom. 



DEDICATION 




MISS FLORENCE C. DAVIS 



Always kind, always smiling, always helpful in every way, Miss Davis has been a beloved 
part of Saint Mary's for more than forty years. As Dean for many years, as teacher, as friend, 
she is esteemed by Saint Mary's girls everywhere because of her sincere interest in the school 
and in each girl individually. It is with a deep respect and gratitude that the 1949 Stage 
Coach is dedicated to her. 




THE CHAPEL 



A pause for meditation during a rushing day, a tranquil service on a Sunday afternoon, 
a crimson carpet with candles quietly burning on the altar, these things symbolize the 
inspiration and comfort of the Saint Mary's chapel. Three times a week and on Sunday, 
the little chapel is a place for worship, quiet thinking and peace of mind for every Saint 
Mary's girl. It is the center of school life both spiritually and personally. It represents 
the high ideals which Saint Mary's stands for, and it presents a challenge of conquest of 
character and soul to each student. The moments spent in the chapel are remembered 
moments when character is built. 




SMEDES HALL 



How many of our grandmothers have come up these same steps, through this .same door ! 
They must have felt the fright at the first crossing of the threshold and the reluctance at 
the last departure. 

Besides being a background for first arrival and final leaving, old Smedes has had the 
job of catching our tears shed for graduating friends, hearing sad week-end farewells, 
and — more joyful to remember — it has witnessed our after-Christmas reunions, and served 
as a place for evening dates and step-singing. 

The time-worn columns have stood by us through smiles and tears for more than a 
century. May they last forever. 




HOLT HALL 



After dinner bridge games in the parlor — Rec room jamborees — ringing "pay phones" — mad 
dashes in the rain to the dining room — bull sessions during study hall — all these symbolize Holt's 
own unique atmosphere, for within these walls lurks an intangible quality that makes life seem 
especially beautiful. Here is found a spirit of understanding and true friendship that is not re- 
strained by unfamiliarity. Despite their isolation, Holt's residents are noted for influencing cam- 
pus fads. In many other ways they prove that their position apart doe's not prevent their being 
an integral factor in the whole. A true hostess to jollity, this wonderful dorm, whose corridors 
were meant to echo laughter, is the place where every girl wants to spend her senior year.

RICHARD GABRIEL STONE, Ph.D. 

President 



After three years, his growing interest and love for Saint Mary's have shown 
dividends through the records of the students erherging from the school and through 
the work fostered by him at the school. Through friendliness, consideration, and 
kindness, he has culminated himself into the heart of every Saint Mary's girl and 
into the spirit of the school itself. 




MARTHA DABNEY JONES, DEAN 



THE REVEREND MR. I. 
HARDING HUGHES 



Efficient in every way, helpful with all 
problems, and patient with each girl are the 
characteristics of our respected Dean, Miss 
Jones. She has upheld and helped to promote 
the high standards and ideals of Saint Mary's. 
The students admire Miss Jones as both 
adviser and friend. 



Mr. Hughes' cheerfulness, helpfulness, and 
friendliness further the true spirit of Saint 
Mary's over the entire campus. His personal 
interest in each girl is one of the main reasons 
for the respect and admiration that the stu- 
dent body has for Mr. Hughes as teacher 
and rector.

STUDENT ADMINISTRATION 

As president of our Student Government Association, Frances has set a perfect example of 
the true spirit in which one should carry out student government. Her sincerity and calmness 
have made it possible for her to handle each problem sensibly and well. Frances herself and her 
student government talks have inspired each girl. The time and interest which Frances devoted 
to student governement have helped to make it inherent and substantial in the heart of every girl. 

Vivacity, force, and versatility make Ann Moore immediately come to our mind. "Nannie" 
started out making her year a success from the very first by conducting the Orientation Week 
which furthered school spirit and class participation. In "Nannie" we see the true spirit of a 
Saint Mary's girl.

Frances has been a living inspiration of Student Government. 

Nannie has been everything that we could ask for in Vice-President of our Student Body. 

Jeanne's good judgment and dignity have made her very capable as Chairman of the Hall 
Council. 

Being secretary of the Hall Council is a tedious and never ending job, but Lelia never neglected 
her duties. 

Ann Dewey Heartt has led the day students through a successful year, furthering at all times 
a closer relation between boarders and day students. 

Susan Jenkins has carried out her duties as secretary of the Student Government Association 
in an efficient and dependable manner.

THE HONOR COUNCIL 

The Honor Council is the central branch of the Student Government Association. 
It deals with the honor and character of a girl, striving to correct any flaw that 
it may find. Broad-minded but conscientious in their judgment, nine members, 
Frances Drane representing the various classes of school and the Student Government Association, 

try any girl who reports herself or is reported for having violated the honor code of Saint Mary's, 
and prove her innocent or guilty. A capable faculty adviser is available at the call of the body 
for advice and consultation; however, the final judgment rests with the president of the school. 
Suitable punishments relating to the offense committed are placed on the girl after careful con- 
sideration of each case. The Honor Council practices secrecy, confidence and diplomacy in all 
its dealings, and the esteem and respect it commands is upheld by each of its members.

The Hall Council and Vice-Council for the school year of '48-'49 have done an excellent job in 
using discrimination in making their decisions. They have shown more than once their ability 
to look at incidents which are called to their attention from a completely impersonal standpoint, 
maintaining a reasonable amount of willingness to understand all sides of a situation. 

Jeanne Brown, Chairman of the '48-'49 Hall Council, with the assistance of Lclia DuPre, Secre- 
tary, has not only led the Counselors and Vice-Counselors through a successful year, but also 
she has helped them to set an example that presents a challenge to the future Hall Councils of 
Saint Mary's ... in that their efficiency has been unexcelled here.

LEGISLATIVE BODY 

The Legislative Body is the voice of the students expressed in student government. Class re- 
presentatives, class presidents, Student Government Association officers and faculty representatives 
compose this group which is designed to change or to modify rules of the school pertaining to 
dormitory or social life. Meetings arc held twice during the school year or at other times deemed 
necessary. A student chairman, Mary DuBose, presides over the meetings and is in charge of the 
proceedings of the group. Petitions signed by three students are handed to the Legislative Body 
to be discussed pro and con, to be voted on, and to be passed or rejected. If not passed in the origi- 
nal form, petitions may be handed to a petition committee to be revised and to be voted on again. 
Passed petitions arc sent to the president of the school who signs or vetoes it, thereby making signed 
petitions become new, wiser and more appropriate rules of the school.

OFFICERS 



Reading from left to right, first row: 
Elizabeth Guion, Vice-President; Ruth 
Sikes, President. Second row: Mary Mc- 
Naughton, Treasurer; Ellen Rixey, 
Secretary; Nelle Clark, Chairman of 
Assembly. 




The 1949 Senior Class of Saint Mary's has been an unusually talented and versatile one. Their 
greatness in number has only been an asset to the school spirit and smooth running of Saint Mary's. 
Surely, they have had their problems (one of which was that Senior English Course), but these 
they have dealt with conscientiously and intelligently. 

Ruth Sikes, President of the Class of '49, and other officers, Elizabeth Guion, Mary McNaugh- 
ton, Ellen Rixey, and Nell Clark made themselves a powerhouse for leadership; and any co- 
operation they received from the class was given not only willingly, but also spontaneoulsy as the 
result of the teamwork their officers maintained. 

From the beginning to the end of the school year of '48-'4g the Seniors have pulled together, 
standing out in every phase of school life as brilliantly as the stars that shine in a black mid-night 
summer sky — twinkling with sparkle, clever, knowing, ever eager to guide the way for those who 
look to them to illuminate the path and last but not- least — adding a beauty of spirit to Saint 
Mary's that would enhance the most realistic minded of persons. 

To the Juniors, because they're a precious lot, they'd like to say, "Whenever you hear 'The 
Bells of Saint Mary's,' think of us, as we'll think of you and our 'forty-niners,' and remember that 
it was we who said 'Carry on'."

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT 



On this sixth day of June, 1949, we the senior class of Saint Mary's School and Junior College, 
being of sound body and sane mind, bequeath the following articles in the manner named below: 

Article I.

ciation. 

To Miss Davis, we leave our love and best wishes for being a wonderful adviser.

To Willie, we express our deepest thanks for the ringing of the cow bell and for the extra minutes 
he holds the dining room door open. 

To the laundry workers, we leave our split sheets and torn pajamas in hopes that they may find 
use for them as dust rags.

We, the senior class, realizing that we have had many and varied talents bestowed upon us, trust

CLASS PROPHECY 



Goddess S. E. Clarkophrodita Tunc 7, 1968 

Senior English Division Paradisa 

Mount Olympus 

Dear Nelle, 

I haven't heard from you in so long that I thought I'd write and let you know what's going on in Paradisa. I 
heard about your obtaining the position of teaching on Mount Olympus. Now it will take you only winged moments 
to fly to see us— if you have time. 

Incidentally it was only nineteen years ago that we graduated from our preflight school. Today some of our class- 
mates' (little angels) arc graduating. Among them will be the daughters of Minor, Sue Leah Lloyd, Charlotte, Mary 
Catherine, Blanche and Jo-Ann — guess all our pin-ups finally tied the knot. Oh yes, Betty Anne's twins and Katy's 
triplets are graduating from high school. Speaking of married couples, I heard that Ruffin's fortune outgrew her meascly 
one carat, so she got a ten carat diamond for her last birthday. Wonder if Jean Craft ever made up her mind to take 
that Georgia pin. 

I read in the Daily Gabriel Horn that McNaughton, while sailing in her new copper jet plane, picked up Connie, 
Peggy, Rixcy, and Pat Ambrose at the Heavenly Journalist Convention. The plane accidentally collided with Jackie 
Murray's "nectar" colored rocket parked behind a cloud bank, however all escaped safely by sliding down a vacuum ray. 

The other day I dashed up to the Golden Circle Department Store to do a little shopping. Guess you know that 
Frances Drane is president of the store and Susan is president of vice. Cut-up Duncan was floor walker, strutting around, 
organizing the salesgirls, Ann Burnette, Ann Bradley, and Frances Minter. Carolyn Watson and Caro were behind 
the perfume counter arguing about how much fifty cents worth of ambrosia would cost. Next, I stepped into the ele- 
vator of laughs and thrills, piloted by the immortal Frances Clark. After innumerable jerks and bounces, I glide into 
The Golden Robe Department. The dazzling souls of Winfree, Betsy Carter, Ann Johnson, and Edith Allison floated 
by, modeling the latest creations in angels wings— and lo, there was Miller on the scene shouting, "Sharpy Do Believe." 
Seems she was reviewing the fashion parade for Betsy Shcpard's designing school for angelic angles. 

After all my cruising about, I decided to rest my weary self, so I 'took off my halo, settled down on a pink cloud, 
and turned on my television set. I turned it in to "Dr. I. C." — Isabel Carter, that is. First contestant up was none 
other than Cuddles Wills— rewarded with a bottle of Carter's Little Reducing Pills. Nanny, without a doubt won the 
Atomic Bubble Contest, and Sue Joyner won the "Who Can Exercise the Vocal Cords the Most" Contest. Virginia 
Page, and Jo Bailey competed for the jack-pot question and Jo won it. The prize was a huge box of ice cream, candy, 
and cigarettes— remember how often her name was up on Miss Brown's bulletin board and how she had such a hard 
time carrying those cartons of goodies up the stairs. 

The program signed off with the Angel Chorus made up of Mary Suratt, Ann Townscnd, Dee Michie, and Rosiland 
Sesensey singing "Here Comes Carolina, lina." 

Best I close, 'cause I gotta get ready for my blind date with Dante. I gotta look real good because Virgil says he's 
some kid. Write and tell me the news of Olympus. Eternally thine, 

Angelface Costner 

Secretary in Charge of Blind Dates 

Paradisa 

Dear Phyllis, 

Your letter was sheer ecstacy, Thanks lots. You asked about the girls on Olympus — so here goes. 

I've been interviewing for the new faculty staff of the Olympian University. Joyce Richert, Doctor of Patiantology, 
Arthroloty and Libraioloty (she isn't very smart), is in charge of the Kindergarten group. Did you know that Catherine 
Cambell is professor of Texas Technology. I hear she grows cactus plants in her dreams. Molly Oakey and Margie 
Story are authors of the By Jupiter on the exaggeration of the Homeric simile. 

Jean Brown counsels the Athletic Department made up of two class classes. The first class of throwing discs is 
instructed by Teague and Robbie while Liz Erdman teaches horsemanship to horse-taming warriors. 

Last night we had a feast in the Hall of Zeua. The Circular Table was headed by Goddess DuPre. As the ban- 
quet progressed, Liz Guion recorded the minutes. Spellbound Martha Bryce, Jean Hoggard, Betsy Jones, and Betty 
Foreman flitted about with winged feet serving a delicious Bason special concocted by Mary Giles. 

Howls and chuckles arose from the assembly when White Armed Margarite Burton presented for entertainment, 
"The Dancing Nymphs," Ruth Saunders, Nancy Duckctt, and Sally Thomas. 

After the banquet, we went to the arena. Toodie, presiding over the foot races, announced the events. The first 
was the ten mile stretch. Ann Whitener, Nancy Spoolman, and Martha Zachary competed, but Zach won overwhelm- 
ingly — no doubt third Smedes put her in good shape. Ladre King and Libby Kornegay fought a duel 'midst shields 
and javelins. They both fell over with sheer fatigue after several hours — sounds like Senior English. 

I had to leave the arena early to attend the laying of the new corner stone of the Clarksonion Institute. The cere- 
mony was delayed a few moments while Martha Wallace dug out a few more inches of cloud where the foundation was 
to be laid; Did you know that Rosa Little is Commander-in-chief of the Cloud Diggers' Guild'* Mary Dubose, who is 
Chairman of the House of Noble Gods, laid the Corner stone. Betty Brynes, honorary daughter of Zeua, presented to 
Dubose not only the key but the lock also. 

Comma, dash, and drop two lines. 

On the way home I encountered Ox-Eyed Anne McMulIand and Rosie Fingered Margaret Morris dashing to 
Trou, who had intercepted the prayers of Brother Hughes for salvation to Sistren Redwood, Betty Langely, Ruth Mor- 
rissett and Harriet Rutherford who were wounded by the wrath of Achilles. 

Since there is a dcscrcpancy in my late light cuts, parenthesis — I get two every full moon-end of parenthesis. I'd 
better close this letter pronto. If I hear any more news about Saint Mary's graduating class of '4g I'll intercede with 
Zeus and send Mercury to bear the tidings. Immortally yours, 



PRGPHETS\<\ 




THE JUNIOR CLASS 




Reading down the stairs: Betty Ray, President; Betty Bowles, Vice-President; Marjorie Sheridan, Secre- 
tary; Anne Cahoon, Treasurer. 



The first year off at school is accredited to be the hardest, but the Junior Class as a whole felt 
it to have been the most successful for them also. The memories of fun and happiness mark out 
the other moments of homesickness or discouragement connected with starting a new life out in 
the world away from home. They worked hard; they succeeded. That first week ... a strange 
roommate . . . getting everywhere on time, or else . . . the Halloween party with an "Injun Chief" 
and "Prune Face" . . . research papers . . . new, firm friendships . . . the de-vine dance in the spring 
for the seniors . . . tears at graduation . . . anticipation of becoming seniors all molded into a re- 
membered dream of when the Juniors "really" grew up.

"Take a letter, please. Type this up." These will be the pass words for the Busi- 
ness Class graduates. The Business Class has had a very successful year and has 
taken its place efficiently in the school and the Student Government Association. 
Always willing to assist in any type work for the Publication Staffs, the Business 
Class students, led by Mary Smith, President, are a vital part of the Saint Mary's 
cycle. 

The Business graduates of '49 have completed a one-year course of a thorough 
grinding-out of the key board which heretofore had been a two-year course. 

Solving many of the problems of the "hunt and peck" operators, these girls, by 
the time they complete this course, have really become "speedies." 

It is with the same sadness the seniors experience at graduation, that the Business 
Students graduate; but they wish to take this opportunity to will all future Business 
Students better luck in sharing the privileges enjoyed by seniors.

SOPHOMORE CLASS 

Some were old girls, some were new girls, but all merged to form one class as the 
weeks flew by . . . outstanding underclassmen recognized by the new honor organiza- 
tion, The Beacon . . . anxious hours spent worrying about someone to double-date 
with . . . love affairs of Greek Gods and Godesses, research paper's, short stories, and 
sonnets . . . missing a whole class to wave at the President of the United States the 
day he rode by school . . . the long awaited Freshman-Sophomore proving to be 
everything we expected . . . the dignified white caps and gowns, the hard-worked- 
for diplomas, and the sad but impressive graduation . . . these things will remain.

CLASS HISTORY 

There wc were !. All of us new and green as 
grass but game. November brought our first 
school reports and a wonderful Thanksgiving 
dinner. We survived them both. We put no 
stock in the HP man, for we were too busy with 
Xmas plans. Next came mid-terms ! Our teachers 
expected some surprising answers, but we were 
over the hurdle and this called for a celebration — a 
dance in February. Then high-ho for Spring 
holidays! We had a spot in the May Court too. 
Before we settled down to study for final exams we 
had our farewell party. Soon we were weeping 
over the departing seniors and glad we wouln't 
have to leave for ages and ages.

EDITORIAL STAFF 
Displaying a "do or die" air of determination, the editorial staff, under its able directors, Miss 
Jones, Dr. Stone, and Mr. Moore, has written and met deadlines in a laudable manner. We doff 
our hats to Pat, Peggy and Betty Ann for turning out three first-rate publications. 

BUSINESS STAFF 
Ads and such unromantic business as this are Berta Allen's concern. Her group of helpers keep 
finances in check and do other tedious work that makes their contribution to Publications clock- 
work a big one.

ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY STAFF 

There is more to Publications than writing. Any member of this valuable staff will tell you that 
flash bulbs and paint brushes have their place. And they are quite effective when used by Marjoric 
Sheridan and her skillful crew. 

CIRCULATfON STAFF 

Twice a month Cynthia Perkins and her staff make sure that each dorm is allotcd its share of 
Betty Ann's newsy Belles. It is with this group that the final job of getting the paper into circu- 
lation rests, and it does its important part efficiently.

We made volleyball and baseball an awful nightmare . . . ask any Sigma. Right behind 
the whole Mu Team were Betsy and Minor. Their inspiration and leadership just 
could not be beat ! We had some cheerleaders too ! Boy, what yells those gals could do. 
They started the first day we had a Mu vs. Sigma meet in the gym, and they kept yelling 
until the last one. Lucile Best was the head cheerleader and Phylis Costner, Helen 
Humphery and Patty Starr helped her. The Letter Club is our honorary athletic organiza- 
tion. The members have made at least two All Star Teams in order to receive their 
letters. They try to direct the class sports and extra-curricular activities; moreover, they 
should be given the highest compliment for their promotion of good sportsmanship and 
school spirit. Under Sara Ann Procter's guidance, it has had one of its best years.

sportsmanship, enthusiasm, and the will to win. Encouraged by their leaders, Dot and 
Robbie, the Sigmas went into every game with unsurpassed zest and vigor. Yes, they 
gave the Mu's a fit all year long. On the hockey and softball field they were superb, and 
we all saw the many goals Nannie and Frankie racked up. Course, our Posture Queen, 
Ann Cahoon, was one of the honored Sigmas too. Cheering and backing their team 
up at all times were Peggy, Ginny, Mary Lou, and Jackie, the Sigmas agreed that ''Red 
and White — Red and White — Yes, Sigmas — you're all right ! ! 

The athletic council planned and guided our athletic program. This being one of 
Saint Mary's most successful years in athletics, shows the time, thought and work that 
the Council devotes to athletics.

MARSHALS 

Symbolic of the grace and quiet dignity that is Saint Mary's arc the Marshals. Chosen by the 
students, these eight girls represent the ultimate in femininity combined with efficiency that is the 
standard of all girls at Saint Mary's. Stately erect carriage is the mark of the marshals as well as 
grace, tact, and poise. Everyday the marshals are seen leading the orderly chapel lines with a 
solemnity that is characteristic of the worship here. To follow the slow pace of the marshals into 
the chapel sets the mood for reverence and peace that is afforded there. On Sundays, the Chief 
marshal, Edith Allison, conducts the pre -church assembly. "Girls on the right sit in the nave. 
Girls with dates may leave." Each Sunday as these familiar words are spoken there is a scramble 
for the door and the chapel line that is formed in the hall. We wonder at the mysterious scheme 
by which the marshals organize the lines, frantically counting off and dividing the groups that sit in 
the nave from those who sit in the transccpt. All Saint Mary's follows the excellent examples set 
by the marshals in dress. We believe that this year more than ever the marshals have expressed a 
neatness and suitability which is admirable. 

Gowned in white, the marshals serve at all school functions. Conducting the school concerts, they 
bring about a well ordered atmosphere which is essential for the smoothness of our programs. 

The confusion of commencement is lessened in their serene but business-like hands. When the 
handkerchief is dropped by our new chief marshal on the last day of school, again we look to our 
marshals as perfect examples of leadership and tradition.

DANCE MARSHALS 

Dim lights — soft music — black and white — dancing eyes and feet — the bustle of flowers and men 
arriving — new dresses — "Goodnight sweetheart." The best memories of all center around the 
Saint Mary's dances, and for their part in the gaiety we thank the Dance Marshals. Officiating 
as hostess at the three big dances, the Senior dance in the winter and the Freshman-Sophomore 
and Junior-Senior in the spring are these champions of the light fantastic. Their smiling faces 
and friendly greetings are a pleasing invitation to all the old and new comers to the dances. They 
are the spirits that move about seeing that everybody gets a rush, taking care of lost stags and re- 
minding men that "you smoke in the Bull-pen." If the music is too hot or too sweet, they are the 
ones who make requests to the orchestra. Just remind the marshal and you may rest assured that 
the man of your choice will break whether he be Carolina, State, or Mr. Moore ! So you don't 
know anybody? Then you haven't been to a girl-break. These informals that are held monthly 
in the gym are the best ways of all to get acquainted. Here the marshals take charge of the funds 
and the music and sees that each boy gets a big rush ! It's an unusual experience to compose a 
feminine stag-line but we'll all agree that it's among the most pleasant of ways to entertain a date. 

Chief Marshal is Katie Evans who reigns as a queen of the dance as well as of the May. Her 
charm and winning smile greets the guests in Smedes Hall and makes a noteworthy impression. 

One of the traditions concerning the dances are the numerous pre-dance parties and picnics for 
out-of-town guests. There is never a scarcity of good times and high spirits that increase the popu- 
larity of the dances. They are an integral part of the fun of a dance weekend and cause for every- 
one's agreement that a dance at S.M.S. compares favorably with those at any of the nearby in- 
stitutions of learning. 

The blue satin armbands that the marshals wear are more than means of identification. They 
stand for all the qualities of southern hospitality, graciousness, and smooth charm that we as- 
sociate with the gayest belles of all — the Dance Marshals. 



EIGHT OUTSTANDING GIRLS 

To be selected as one of the most outstanding girls on the campus is an honor that every Saint 
Mary's girl covets. Each year the student body bestows this distinction on eight girls from the

1948 MAY COURT 



May Queen Sandy and her court added their beauty to the 1948 May Day Program. The 
theme was from a poem by Grace Noll Coward. The queen represented ''day" and the members 
of the court represented the colors of "dawn." Group dances portrayed "breath of pine," '"high- 
tangled bird notes," "poem," "misty bloom," and "a late line of crimson sun." The members 
of Orchesis under the direction of Mrs. Guess gracefully performed the dances.

1949 MAY COURT 



Our lovely Queen Katy was chosen to reign over Saint Mary's 1949 May Day Festivities. She 
and her eleven attendants were elected for their poise, beauty, and charm to take part in a program 
with dances based on the theme and plot of "L' Allegro." The hero, L' Allegro, was overcome by 
Melancholy, but Mirth and Liberty came to cheer him and free him from the Goddess of Gloom. 
After the Maypole dance the villagers came to tell stories and sing L 5 Allegro into a restful sleep. 
When he awoke he was happy and crowned Mirth his queen. 



A YEAR IN THE GROVE 



This year, 1948-49, "A Year in the Grove" is 
being presented as a special feature of the 
Stage Coach. The aim of the Editor is to 
point out the events of the year which were 
really big ones and, along with these, to point 
out a few of the ordinary everyday habits 
which may not seem outstanding, but without 
which "Life at Saint Mary's' 1 would absolutely 
be amiss; this doesn't mean that everything 
always stays unchanged and that the inhabi- 
tants of the said Saint Mary's are not prcgres- 
sive-minded people, but it should signify to the 
reader a few of the occurrences that befall the 
girl who leads a typical Saint Mary's life; it is 
the further object of the Editor to combine 
these units of "Life at Saint Mary's" into a 
cherishable diary that will be compact enough 





to inscribe as with a pen of indelible ink upon 
the hearts of all Saint Mary's students, faculty, 
and friends of 1948-49, leaving an unerasable 
blot of the presence of unequaled pleasures 
which exist herein. 




It all began on September 27, 1948 — Polio, 
Public Enemy No. 1 , had delayed our opening. 
This didn't faze us. Once Saint Mary's 
school year of '48-'4g opened, it opened with 
a burst of school spirit which could hardly be 
paralleled anywhere ! 



the new girls and not wait to be impressed. 
This was the night no one was irritated; no 
one could chat or smile too much; hands 
didn't get tired of shaking hands; introductions, 
even the unavoidable repeated ones, were fun. 
How spicy can a hen party get. 



Orientation week and preliminary place- 
ment testing were crowned with the popular 
Old Girl-New Girl Party. Everyone was 
on the job, making impressions which of 
necessity had to stick. The old girls exchanged 
ideas with the new, while the faculty proved to 
be masters of memory by remembering the 
names of last years Big Sisters, saving embar- 
rassing situations for their new Little Sisters. 
This was the one night when all old Saint 
Mary's girls knew they should try to impress 



Zoom ! Into the routine of classes we dove 
like eager beavers, searching for rivalry at the 
same time maintaining teamwork; and school 
spirit soared higher and higher! One had 
only to observe the faces of those girls con- 
versing seriously or on the subject of "MEN" 
(also seriously) to conclude that Saint Mary's 
was loved by all. 

The new girls were quick on the uptake to 
Saturday morning breakfast at the Toddle

Book.

Had" (borrowed from The Belles), and "O 
Did See." 

Thanksgiving had past and most had ex- 
perienced the pleasure of refreshing home 
cooked meals. O Zeus — what paradise ! 



Christmas was approaching and with it the 
anticipation of celebrating after the Divine 
Comedy, research papers, and Greek mythol- 
ogy. The Senior Dance plans were under 
way and Saint Mary's was the home where 
brains is the important dish of the kitchen. 

"Don't scream! Mcrrv Christmas. No

D.C. test. Sign pledge. Charles Albert 
Petigru Moore." Never before or never will 
be a more excited group of girls than the Seniors 
who thanked THAT MAN for such a lovely 
Christmas card. The Senior Dance was an 
inevitable "rushy" success as social life re- 
sumed its pre-Christmas peak. Decorations, 
music (oh-so sweet), and men! — all were out 
of this world ! 

The Banquet was at worst more fun and full 
of enthusiasm than ever before; but what was 
missing; the Circle fooled everybody and didn't 
walk — but the Seniors did at 6:30 Tuesday 
morning. Whisked home we were, and could 
such a short Christmas have been more packed 
with fun, desires for the big show, chuckles, 
parties, debuts, and in general, a good time 
for everybody. 

Sunday, January 1 , Dear Diary, Where did 





time march that time? We got back in the 
grove and settled down to some good hard 
studying for exams. "How much can a person 
have to know?" — Yes, this was the Saint 
Mary's question of the month. The rumors 
were true. We didn't get exam vacations! 

Oh, Dear Diary — Aren't they wonderful? 
The popular threesome of the campus or in 
other words, you peon, the Stones— the hum- 
orous Richard (he's really worth listening to) 
and Mrs. Stone who has not only worked her 
fingers to the bone on the little Chapel but 
is so nice to know; then of course there's 
Dr. Richard for whom anyone would be willing 
to open the door! 

Then there were other things, Dear Diary, 
that all like you to know. My heart sank each 
time I raced to the mail call and found an 
EMPTY MAIL BOX. Mail' had the power 
to lift me right up on a cloud or to sink me to 
the lowest depths of Inferno. Dear Diary, 
please make Saint Mary's patrons (you know 
which ones) to address all mail to Saint Mary's 



95 




School and Junior College. The girls like 
mail, but not by means of the pony express. . . . 
"581 1 — Will you please send a cab out to 
Saint Mary's School right away? I have 
to . . ." well you know the rest of that so de- 
tails won't be necessary. The worst came on 
those nights when for days and nights we'd 
been trying to get one of the pay phones and 
after succeeding in getting as far as "Operator 
. . ."the 10:15 bell rang — "to the halls, girls, all 
girls must be on their halls." Speaking of 
halls, they came rushing out of them, from 
Smedes, the Rocks, Holt, the Wings (all fine 
halls) going everywhere imaginable. Spring 
vacation had come. It was the time of year 
when green leaves were greener, flower buds 
awoke, birds chirped more gayly, and Saint 



Mary's gals longed for the open air, whether 
in a convertible with the top relaxed or strolling 
in the noon day sun. 

The Sun Porch where one learns all the 
latest news broadcasts (S.M.S. dirt), anticipates 




96 




officers for the following year, and becomes 
better acquainted with what it would be like 
to be at the beach again under the beaming 
rays of Old Man Sun had long since been the 
last word as far as the real "heart" of Saint 
Mary's is concerned. 

The Freshman-Sophomore was, of course, 
terrific, as are all Saint Mary's dances. The 
usual procedure of meeting new faces, at- 
tracting new faces and having them back to the 
Junior-Senior, which wasn't too long after 
the Freshman-Sophomore, was bound to exist 
•again for some. 

From this time on, projection into the future 
is necessary. 

The Grove of Stately Oak Trees 'neath 
which we wandered under the lovely five 
o'clock sun and in the atmosphere of nature 
will be popular again. 

And come what may, Miss Digges and her 
"fortune" guidance will reign supreme while 
Mr. Moore will continue to get an inside view 
of Tom Jones (poor boy) ! Mr. Hughes will 




97 



be our lovable counselor, ready to understand 
all when the need may arise and Mr. Guess 
will keep his economics, sociology, government, 
and history students guessing as "time marches 
on." 




Miss Davis, who was loved from the begin- 
ning and who did all that anyone could to 




make the Seniors have a successful year, will 
find out that the Student Body has voted to 
dedicate the Stage Coach of 1948-49 to her 



and that the Seniors hope she'll remember 
them with half the fond memories with which 
they associate her. 

The Senior Class of '4g is larger than most 
in years before, but this has been and will be 
to their advantage because they have the desire 
to stick together and have done so in making 
contagious the spirit of Saint Mary's. Dear 
Diary, it's a good spirit ! Make it expand and 
expand until there's no more room for ex- 
pansion. Make it pull the veins of all Saint 
Mary's girls into one heart working as one 
organism as the '49 Seniors have done. Al- 




98 



though it's true that "Big Surprises Come in 
Small Packages," the many tenants of the 
House of Saint Mary's Senior Class have lived 
up to the expectations of all its landlords. 
Fine contents are they now and shall be. 

The May Day program, the Commence- 
ment Play, the Baccalaureate Service, the 
final address and the issuance of sheep skins 
shall ring a grand finale when the returning 
and separating friendships are climaxed with 
tears, some instigated by joy, others by sorrow, 
and others by sentimental reflections of the 
beloved times had at Saint Mary's. Then shall 
ring in the hearts of the 1949 Seniors this 
question: "Our Ships Have Sailed — Where 
Shall We Anchor?"

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA— first among nations in 
national income! First in production of wheat, corn, 
cotton, petroleum, coal, and iron! First in commu- 
nications/ in motor vehicles per capita— first In many 
pals to good living and prosperity. 
Vnd directly related to that position of leadership 
our standard of education— for it has been shown 
that a country's wealth and welfare rise along with 
its educational standards. And countries rich in 
natural resources can be poor and backward with- 
out the benefits of education. 

Yes, the United States is a leader in the field of 
education too— but ' for bow long? Appalling con- 
ditions prevail today in many of our schools. Many 
of our most brilliant teachers are working against 



odds— crowded classrooms, shortages of equipment 
and textbooks, long hours. . . . Thousands have left 
the profession for other work. 

You, and every United States citizen, will suffer 
from this situation, because it cannot help affecting- 
our national prosperity before long. 

WHAT TO 

Today— make it your business to take these two steps: 
1. Check up on educational conditions in your local 
schools; 2. Back up and work with organizations 
seeking to improve teachers' working and living 
conditions. For only by keeping our educational 
standards high can we hold our place in the world 
—and assure a prosperous future for our children.

A GOOD MOTTO 

From a pamphlet: 

"Once upon a time a man of business hung a motto 
on his office wall, which read: 'No man is greater than 
his thoughts.' 

"To him it looked like good wisdom and sound reason- 
ing. One day a friend dropped in, and seeing the motto 
said, 'That's a good motto you have there, Bill, but I know 
a better one "No man is greater than his decisions".' 

"And so the 'Thoughts' motto was replaced with the 
'Decisions' motto and Bill's thinking moved up a step. 

Now then, both mottoes are good, but I believe that 
if the last one was replaced by: "No man is greater than 
his faith," Bill's thinking would take another step upward 
For after all, according to our faith so are our decisions 
We cannot make great decisions without great faith.
